Nas Announces ‘King’s Disease III’ Album

Rap legend Nas took to social media today (October 18) to reveal what is supposedly cover art for a new project. With a caption that reads “11•11,” the art features three gold bars against a red backdrop. Each gold bar is engraved with the title “KD3,” which likely refers to the third entry into his King’s Disease album series.

Nas has been no stranger to surprise releases of late. On Christmas Eve, 2021, the MC and Hit-Boy shared a special surprise for fans dropping their new nine-track album, Magic, which was announced just a few hours before its release.

The album marked the MC’s second new album of 2021, following the release of the aforementioned King’s Disease II in August, which in turn followed up 2020’s King’s Disease.

King’s Disease III continues the creative surge Nas has experienced in recent years, marking his fourth album in just over two years’ time. The Queensbridge native has also kept his pen busy by appearing on multiple collaborations during that period. These tracks include DJ Khaled’s “Sorry Not Sorry” featuring Jay-Z, DMX’s “Bath Salts” featuring Jay-Z, the posthumous Exodus cut “Walking in the Rain,” and Snoop Dogg’s BODR track “Conflicted.”

“MAGIC is in the air,” the rapper wrote on Instagram as he shared the record’s artwork and back sleeve. “Midnight ET brand new music to vibe to.”

Nas had previously spoken about making a third album with Hit-Boy, who he has referred to as his “Quincy Jones”, shortly after the release of King’s Disease II. At the time, he had said that while they had no plans to collaborate again, he wouldn’t rule it out if the time and the idea was right. “I feel like the next thing I do, if I was to work with Hit-Boy on the next thing I do, I think that we might do something that was going to be magical,” he commented.

“I think what we have is magic. And I think the next thing we do would have to be the next page. And that, to me, excites me, that possibility […] I think if we do another one, I’m excited about that idea, but you know, we’re celebrating this one now.”

The duo had also collaborated on the standalone single “Big Nas,” which was released as a preview for Nas’ MasterClass series on hip-hop storytelling.

King’s Disease II has been nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2022 Grammy Awards, with “Bath Salts” also nominated for Best Rap Song. King’s Disease won Best Rap Album at this year’s edition of the prestigious music awards.
